I agree. i think it's there too. If you listen to the aud you get the crowd going crazy then to a collective, "awwwww" as they pull the rip cord

they couldn't play that tune worth a shit in 69, why would they be able to do it then?

it's true, jerry admitted it. he overdid those aoxo tunes. they were cumbersome to perform, overwritten. he was writing songs to just write songs, not necessarily for the band to successfully perform them live. those 69 charlies are sometimes painful to listen to. some are o,k, but it wasn't a tune they routinely nailed. just look at the lack of them in 69 setlists. the boys knew charlie wasn't their strongsuit.

I'm amazed they kept a tune as complex as China Cat in the repertoire so successfully for so long.

hi Lou,

re China Cat - the complexity of the tune dropped immeasurably during the 80's and 90's.

Interesting. Could you (or someone else) point me to a good but representatively less complex CCS from the 80s or 90s? Thanks!
